    You can still get desktop, but no more laptops.

    They are all as American as Fujii Apple Pie. I know Arima is one of their ODM's, there may be others, but like most notebook vendors, they just slap their brand sticker on mass produced third world laptops.

    They never actually made laptops. Just like most of the other 'Laptop Makers', they ordered them from third world countries and slapped their brand sticker on them.
